Louisiana courthouse records online, A-L

Familysearch.org has a bit of a treasure trove when it comes to parish court records in its online card catalog. Unfortunately – frustratingly – only some of them are accessible from home. For the rest, you have to go to a Church of Latter Day Saints’ library computer.

Here’s a list of what’s available by parish without leaving home. To find them, go the website’s catalog and search using this format: United States, Louisiana, (PARISH)
